I'm just wondering what the difference is between CAT 5, 5e, all types of 6 and 7. If someone could put up a comparison chart or some links it would help a lot.

More about : cat types

Is there something more reliable than that source, seeing how I've never heard of them?

So apparently there are no specifications and standards for CAT6 or CAT7 but yet newegg says that the CAT7 cable meets TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 Specifications. Makes perfect sense.

TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10 is Cat 6, Cat 7 is just a proposed category that hasn't been officially adopted yet.
